Roc Nation and the NFL announced on Wednesday that Hov’s first act as part of his controversial partnership with NFL, would be a FREE concert in Chicago‘s Grant park. According to People Magazine, the free concert will feature Meek Mill and Meghan Trainor and will be live streamed during the NFL pregame. It has been reported that proceeds from the concert and sales of any subsequent merchandise would go to various, social justice organizations. As you know, Jay Z has been heavily criticized for partnering with the NFL in light of the fact that Colin Kaepernick has been essentially blackballed for taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Kaepernick has been protesting the unfair treatment of people of color by law enforcement in this country. Predictably, this latest move by Jay, has done nothing to silence his critics and has actually led to more questions about his agenda. All we can do is watch and see how it all plays out! Until next time ... Ya Heard!
